Correction on previous post: maybe life isn’t full of /coincidences/, but physical trajectory collisions. Because at some level, trajectories are deterministic. But it leaves ample space for a lot of things in life to be happenstance.
When you say “timing is everything”, what does that even mean? Sometimes I think about how I have over a thousand songs in my library and how each song has a 1 in one-thousand-something chance of being played next. And even with such minuscule chances, a song ends up being played next! I really do think life is just an aggregation of coincidences, whether there was a major or infinitesimal chance of it occurring. Life is just synchronicity. Nothing was meant to happen, everything just did. We have to stop attributing so much meaning to meaningless things. I think if anything, “everything happens for a reason” is just a coping mechanism.
I was crying out of excitement on the airplane - it felt so unreal to have my Japan dream finally coming true! After four months it just feels like my reality. I blended right in!
I’ve been into anime ever since I first laid my eyes on Sailor Moon. In comparison to the dry realism of the American cartoons anime is expressive, playful and full of wild twists you would never expect. My favourites include Tokyo Ghoul and Vampire Night. I also admire the over the top artistic self-expression of the Japanese subcultures like the Harajuku girls and the Gyaru! I find the idea of creating a character through your make up and just going through daily life both brilliant and exhilarating.
One of my dreams is to open up the first ever Japanese host club of Canada! Art of conversation is dying. We need to create new real life social channels. I would love to challenge people to converse with strangers over coffee or wine.
To experience the maid cafes and host clubs, otaku people, anime and video game shops, visit Akihabara Electric Town in Tokyo. Another good starting point is Osu District in Nagoya where the annual World Cosplay Summit is held. If you are still only dreaming of visiting Japan, go for some free English dubbed / subbed anime online: http://www.animefreak.tv/
I find Japanese men super charming. They’ve got those aesthetic features and that witty yet innocent flirt. They carry themselves cool and charismatic - they don’t have to be all aggressive about it. The family values and traditions are well respected in Japan.
Compared to Japan, in some ways Canada feels more liberated. If you hurt your foot in public in Canada you will shout to high heavens, as in here in Japan people tend to keep it more silent and suppressed. They would actually excuse themselves instead of swearing to the world.
I’m new here so sometimes I still feel a bit behind the language barrier. I already master four other languages so I’m confident about learning Japanese too. Until then communication is all about creativity! #japan_of_insta#art_of_japan_#japantravelphoto#daily_photo_jpn#discovertokyo#citykillerz#japan_vacations#japanlife#instagramjapan#explorejapan#instajap
“Sinh mệnh con người thực sự ngắn ngủi, con đừng để mỗi ngày trôi đi vô ích.
Người ta tham vọng sống lâu nhưng con chỉ cần sống hạnh phúc mỗi ngày.
Nếu con thấy mình đang hạnh phúc, cứ sống như là con muốn, cha mẹ luôn dõi theo con”
Goyama's fire which burns the night sky of Kyoto in the summer on August 16 every year. August 16, 2019 is Friday. It is a weekday.
In the mountains surrounding Kyoto city, the shapes of "big", "large" "strange law" and "torii" and "ship" of the flame are emerging one after another.
With that flame, it is said that the spirit of the dead called Shimo is delivered to the other world.
It is said that the visitors of Goyama's fire are over 100,000 even on weekdays, and the town in Kyoto overflows with people.
Even though I go out somehow, it is hard to move, I can not find a good appreciation spot, and it is important not to mention enough time for fire to light for only an hour. Since it is likely to rain recently, it is better to examine the weather as well.
